The Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) has taken note of the article appearing in the Saturday Standard on 9th June 2018 edition, on page 11 titled ‘Want Cash? Volunteer for a dose of malaria parasite, says Kemri amid ethical queries.’

The author of this article misquotes outcomes of published research papers on human infection model against malaria by not just sensationalizing the studies, but also angling them as quick and easy economic activity for volunteers.
